Huen Phen began life as a specialty northern Thai restaurant and was so acclaimed and popular that they’ve branched out into accommodation with this small, boutique style midrange hotel.

Perhaps being new to the business, Huen Phen does display a few contradictions, but nowhere is perfect, and with a few caveats we felt the pros definitely outweighed the cons and this charming little spot which is well worth considering among a host of Old City boutique-style establishments.

First the good news: The location is a definite plus, smack bang in the centre of the Old Citt, just behind Wat Chedi Luang on relatively quiet Ratchamanka Road. Ratchadamnoen is just one block over and Tha Pae just a short walk away, as are most of the other downtown sights.

There are only 16 rooms so Huen Phen has an intimate feel along with friendly personal service, and their small pool shouldn’t get too busy. Decor, both exterior and the rooms themselves, feature Lanna-style carvings and textiles, but not in an over the top way. The rooms are seriously cute and well thought out— even standard rooms are very well appointed. The top floor Chiang Mai restaurant is excellent. Included breakfasts are served in a downstairs cafe next to reception. Also comfortable and well decorated, they offer drinks throughout the day.

On the downside, despite having just 16 rooms, they manage to have five room types at highly varying prices. Some seemed to us to be good deals and others not so much so. They did point out that additional low season discounts may be offered and online booking rates provide decent savings, making the superior and standard (the former coming with balconies and the latter without) good value for money.

Considering they do claim to be family friendly—the (very small) pool comes with inflatable toys—the family rooms and suites don’t come cheap. An extra bed for 1,000 baht is very pricey compared to most hotels in the city and children from six years old are charged adult rates, compared to 10 or 12 years old in most other places we checked in Chiang Mai.

Overall, Baan Huen Phen Boutique Hotel is a cute, reasonably priced and well situated choice for double occupancy. If you’re with kids though there are better options worth a look in Chiang Mai.
